Don't be shellfish...Tweet about this on TwitterShare on FacebookShare on Google+Share on Reddit

You’ve been patient but anxious.  Excited and yet nervous.  Yearning for your top TE to return but realizing when he returns it’s gonna be glorious.  Well, McLovin, it looks like your moment has come.  Barring any unforeseen reports of a thumbs down from Dr. James Andrews, it looks like Rob Gronkowski will finally grace active fantasy rosters for 2013.  I’m pretty sure he’s still 1% started by the guys that drafted and never set their lineup.  You know the one.  We all have our own personal Taco in our league.  But regardless, you’re elated to get your Gronk back so you can stop streaming the dregs of Sean McGrath and Kellen Winslow through your lineups.  Hopefully he didn’t screw you into a gruesome start to the year but all’s well that Tight Ends well, right?  Outside of the return of the original partying TE, I have Eddie Lacy down in flex territory which is apparently a tad different from how others view him.  Did Baltimore somehow forget how to stop the run?  No?  Ok then, I don’t get his rankings this week unless we’re crazy desperate because of bye weeks to rank notable names.  I’m gonna let the PT Cruiser keep cruising in my rankings.  I had my hunches about the hometown boy having a good game but the big thing about this week is the matchup…and there aren’t many great RBs to pick from.  Besides him, I’m still trusting Gio-B more than my counterparts right now and actually have Vincent Jackson as my 11th wideout in standard.  I know the story’s not great in Tampa Bay but you wanna know what is great?  The Philly defense…wait, I meant it’s great facing them cuz they’re not great.  It’s crizzap on that side of the ball.  Even with Glennon behind center, I’d take my chances with VJax.  Dallas defense?  Not great but at home and I think they’ll score a touchdown due to the ‘skins offense still looking a bit rugged to start the year.  Indy Colts def?  They’ve been trending the right direction.  Might surprise a San Diego team that turns the ball over a bit.  But enough of the j to the ibberjabber, let’s get on with it.  Here’s the week 6 rankings for 2013 Fantasy Football…

    Jason Witten and David Wilson for Alfred Morris? Y! 10 Team Standard league

    Will Own Jimmy Gramham at TE and Doug Martin,MJD, Lamar Miller, Mcgahee and now Alfred morris at RB. I feel Morris will make a better upgrade at RB2 over MJD o r Mcgahee this week and maybe beyond.

    With the 2 for 1 trade (which I know you hate…but makes other teams feel like they r getting more when they r actually getting less ) I will now be able to pick up a DEF to start over NE.

    Good Trade and strategy or Bone Head Move? Sitting at 2-3 in 7th.

      If you have Graham, it’s fine. A bit of an overspend but in 10 team, it’s about having the best lineup on a weekly basis moreso than having the best team.

    Trade Rivers for Amendola.

    Good trade? I

    Current QBs: Romo, Rivers.

    Current RBs: Rice, Spiller, Richardson, D. Thomas

    Current WR: Cobb, Nicks, Bowe, K. Allen.

    I plan on flipping Bowe for Lamar Miller and picking Bradford to be my backup QB.

    Any input is appreciated.

      Ehhhh, Reed’s a low ceiling play. Not a terrible move but it’ll be a lot of 4/50 5/55 lines. Nothing wrong with that, just not gonna have big weeks.

    Hey sky, I’d like your opinion on a couple possible trades, sitting at 1-4 so this week is a must win like most weeks going forward. It’s a 5 ppr league
    1. Forte for aj green and sproles
    2. Mjd and Colston for aj green
    3, mjd and Colston for dez Brient
    4. Forte, vereen, Colston for Gronk aj green sproles
    Let me know which deals you like thanks for input
    Qb – Brady
    Wr – decker
    Wr – Calvin
    Rb – forte
    Rb – l bell
    Te – cook (killing me weekly)
    Flex – mjd
    Bench – Colston vereen Brandon bolden Keenan Allen Bryce brown

    • Sky

      Sky says:

      1. Sure

      2. Nah, probably doesn’t work anyway

      3. I wouldn’t trade you Dez for those two

      4. I’d want the Gronk side, doubt it works.

      • Oppo Taco says:
        (link)

        @Sky: you would rather Colston and mjd than aj? Do you see jones drew being anymore productive than what he’s been to this point? Also this particular owner has Heath miller. Is he an upgrade over cook ROS?

        • Sky

          Sky says:
          (link)

          @Oppo Taco: Given AJ’s struggles, feels like an overspend but in the end like I said, I wouldn’t give you green for that package so it’s probably moot.

          Heath Miller is a low celing/high floor player. Weekly 5/60 or 6/65 is useful just have to be ok with that. He’s the safer play, wouldn’t call him the better one.

    Morning Bud… This guy offered me Joquie Bell and Cam Newton for MJD and Bowe. Iv’e been trying to dump those guys on someone anyway and it hasn’t been working AT ALL but is that worth it for me?? He has Le Veon Bell whichI think is better, should I counter with him and Cam?? I know how you feel about 2 QB’s but I’m gonna use Cam as a trade option for another WR. This guy is in dying need of WR’s even before he lost Julio..

            No he’s gonna do it but I’m also throwing him Givens.. What u think, Le Veon Bell n Cam for Bowe, MJD and Chris Givens?? The only thing that sucks is that will leave me one WR on the bench but I’ll have a spot or 2 to pick more up

            • Frank White says:

    U have coached me to a 5-0 squad; have wr/te studs in a ppr league. We play 3 wideouts; we don’t have a TE: pick 3 Gronk; Djax; Cobb; Josh Gorden; Garcon?

    Thinlk of sittimng. D jAx while he vacations on Revis Island and sit Gorden while he vacations on Cleveland QB island why anyone would want to gp to Cleveland is beyond me

    We play H to H and entire team for total points. Do i also move WR/TE for upgrade at Run Back; McCoy, CJ2k. Bell m stashed. Vareen?

    • jeff g says:

        Nice! If you don’t have a TE or a flex, what are you doing with Gronk?

        Gronk/Garcon/Gordon for me…still don’t know how you’re using Gronk though.

        Are you saying those are your RBs or your targets?

        • jeff g says:
          (link)

          @Sky: we need to play 3 wr or TE mix no requirement to play either or.

          You play gorden over cobb?

          I was asking abt my running backs I am hating cj.5k mccoy is a stud and vareen will be a ppr monster when he returns. Will have to drop bell or cj2k when vareen returns. Do I my rb 2 by offering 1 of my wr/te studs and cj2k and who would I want?

          • Sky

            Sky says:
            (link)

            If you wanna play it safe, you can go w/Cobb. Gordon can do what he did last week pretty regularly though.

            Not about who you want, it’s about the needs of the other owner. If you’re trying a two for one from that set, you should be aiming very high. Most likely you’re better off doing a 1-1. Try and get someone that isn’t a sexy name but is productive. Alfred Morris comes to mind.

  9. Robert says:

    Good morning! Looking forward to tonight’s game, have Martellus going (hopefully). Question on flex. PPR league, need 2 RB, 2 WR and flex. Going McCoy and Woodhead at RB, Andre and Antonio Brown at WR. Debating between Fitz and Alfred Morris at flex. Leaning Morris. Thoughts? Thank you

    Also – I see you have Pryor rated higher the Wilson, but they are close. I think Wilson has a lower floor, but Pryor a much higher ceiling. If I’m in a gambling mood this weekend, do you go Pryor?

      It’s a good matchup and he’ll be playing from behind all day so plenty of time to throw the ball. Still think that would be a bit much to start him over Stafford.

    Big decision! I need to win this week and my roster is depleted… I have to start two of these 3, MJD, Zach Stacy or Chris Givens? Obviously I have limited options so at the moment MJD is my #2 RB so it’s a toss between Stacy and Givens as my flex? Bad position, but such is life, thanks.

        @Sky: just wondering… gostkowski is my kicker and usually ranked pretty high by all. ECR had him a lot higher than you did, based on above so just wanted to know why you think he’s gonna do so poorly compared to what others think… I guess your saying that game has potential to be a shoot out and if NE wants to keep up with Breez and co., they’re gonna need touchdowns? Not that it makes a difference for my team. Not going to drop gostkowski for another kicker this week…

          Yeah, it’s one of those games I could see both sides busting out in a big way offensively. Not to say the kickers won’t score points but if it’s 5 touchdowns and zero FGs for Pats, I wouldn’t be surprised is all.

    12 team non-ppr league. I lost Julio and picked up Pettis. I also have Bryce Brown on my bench. I’m thinking about offering him to the McCoy owner in my league for a WR. He has Vincent Jackson, Antonio Brown, Cobb, Rueben Randle, Harry Douglas. Would you try to make a move or wait and see what happens – Brown could be pretty valuable if McCoy goes down. On the other hand, I could use help now – Jackson?

    • Sky

      Sky says:
      (link)

      I think you’re overestimating Brown’s value by a lot. He’s not worth a startable WR right now without a McCoy injury. You’re gonna need to offer more than that.

    okay, this is gross, but my running backs are chris johnson, rashad jennings, ivory, d richardson, and i’ve stashed vereen because these guys are all awful. i think i need to drop a couple guys to take a shot on jacobs, and to stash jonathan stewart. i plan on dropping jennings after this weekend to grab stewart. would you drop ivory or d-rich for jacobs? i could also drop marlon brown or stevie johnson, cause my wr’s are calvin johnson, t.y. hilton, blackmon, and keenan allen, so those two are my #5 and 6. thoughts on dropping any of them for jacobs, or should i just stand pat? non-ppr. thanks sky, good luck this week!

      Ummmm, why do you need to take a chance on Jacobs exactly? He’s horrible and will maybe only start 1 game and more than likely he’s splitting reps with Scott…very strange move in my book. Stewart’s value is mostly for PPR leagues but dropping Rashad for him makes sense.

      • Byron from Austin says:

        @Sky:

        ehh, i just thought it’d be worth a shot for a td, if by chance mcfadden plays and makes jennings worthless.

        • Sky

          Jacobs needs to be on the 1 inch line for a TD and even then, it’d take 4 tries. He’s just terrible.

    2 QB, 2 wr, 2 rb, 2 flex Keeper league, in the middle of the pack this year, just as likely to miss the playoffs as make them. I have an offer of Kenbrell Thompkins (9th round pick) for Andre Ellington (who I picked up off the wire and is therefore a 15th round pick). Do I pull the trigger? I’m afraid Ellington is going to bust out and while Thompkins may just lose out with Gronk back.

    Non-PPR league. Been offered Reggie Wayne for Gronk, though I was figuring I could offer Julius Thomas as a counter and hold onto Gronk (especially after today’s blogpost of yours =D). The flex allows RB/WR/TE so saying no and playing both TEs is also an option.

    I’m thin at WR with HNicks/CShorts/MAustin/SteveJohnson. As mentioned, I have the two stud TEs in Gronk/Thomas.

    Thoughts?

    I need to drop somebody to pick up a defensive back in my 12-team, PPR, .5 PPRush, 10 return yards per point, league. Here is my bench:

    Vick, Cordarrelle Patterson, Tavon Austin, Terrence Williams, Ryan Mathews, Andre Ellington, and Snelling.

    I can’t figure out who to let go of, but I’m leaning somewhere in between Patterson, Austin, and Snelling. Patterson would be the obvious drop in other leagues, but he has more points than Tavon so far this year. And Snellings role will significantly decrease whenever S-Jax comes back. So annoying. I hate having to drop any of these dudes to roster a DB, but that’s IDP for ya!

      They definitely move up but their rush defense is better suited towards north/south runners. Guys like Bush still give them fits. Even a gimpy CJ busted a 54 yarder on them. They’d probably slide up to closer to 8 or 9 for me.

    I came to you last week to talk me out of a potential Moreno + Blackmon deal for AJ Green. You told me to enjoy my depth & relax.

    • Sky

      Answers still the same. Unless you’re trading him 2 WRs, you’re not getting him without ruining your depth and even then it would have to be a pretty lowball offer (Blackmon/Brown lets say) to make it a win for you

    Based on your ranking you’re leaning more towards bust this week for Reuben Randle. For my flex this week in a 0.5 PPR league, I’m looking at Randle, Edleman, Ridley, or Brandon Bolden. I’m more or less looking for a floor play as I’m playing a weaker opponent this week.

    0.5 PPR, bonuses at 85 yds receiving/100 yds rushing (3 points), 135 yds receivng/150 yds rushing (6 points)

    I’m cutting Wilson with the neck issue. It’s a shallow league and no one is going to take him, so I’m not worried about it. Who’s the pickup:

    Ellington, Bolden, Ivory, Stacy, Goodson, Pettis, Simpson, Randle, Austin, Williams, K.Allen, Buc Williams, Mike Floyd, Cordarelle, Harvin, Little

    The way our bonuses are set up, WRs are just as valuable if not more so than RBs. I’ve been playing two RBs per week and I’m in first with the most points.

    Sky,
    Would you trade Cobb and Torrey to get Moreno and Blackmon? May be able to get Morris instead of Moreno.

    In a 10-team ppr with following roster going into this week:
    QB: Rodgers
    RB1: Powell
    RB2: Tate
    WR1: DThomas
    WR2: Cobb
    WR3: Torrey
    TE: Garrett Graham
    WR/RB: VJax
    WR/TE: Shorts
    Bench: Blount, Brown, Wilson, Ivory, McFadden, Wright, Clay

    Obviously need to add an RB.

    • Sky

      Sky says:

      Morris over Moreno. No chance that you can just do a 1-1? Seems like there’s no reason to do a 2-2 there

      • David says:
        (link)

        I think that my WR depth and my QB is my advantage. Since I can start as little as 2 RB’s in my league, I should be able to be good enough to win with just powell and a healthy DMC/Wilson especially in a PPR league.

        I’m 2-3 right now and if I evaluate my season so far, it has been a nightmare of uncertainty. Rodgers has had only 2 plus performances for me and I suffered during his bye. My Bengals defense has had only 2 plus performances with one coming in a week when I got zero TD’s from any of my WR’s of which I won a real stinker. And every one of my losses have been blowouts. I lost week one 233-161. 161 points would have beaten a majority of the league that week.

        I feel that if I get at least 10 points each from my RB’s (my league scoring is very generous) my QB and WR’s should take care of the rest, but that formula has yet to be exhibited.

        What do you think of that assessment, or am I delusional?

        • Sky

          Sky says:
          (link)

          @David: It’s a reasonable assessment; it kinda plays into how the year has gone so far.

          • David says:
            (link)

            So with that being said, how long you think I can get away with that game plan because the reality is Bilal Powell is my most reliable RB. DMC can be good enough but needs to stay healthy, as well as Wilson but we know nothing of the extent of his injury.

            • Sky

              Sky says:
              (link)

              Your strategy needs more depth for sure. That’s the only thing wrong with it; starting Tate because one of your starting RBs went down isn’t ideal.

              • David says:

    My RB stable has been hurt by injuries and ineffectiveness (Bradshaw, Mendenhall, Mathews) so I’m currently looking at Joique Bell and Mendenhall as my RB2 options this week. McGahee is clearly an upgrade over those options this week, but how do you feel about him long-term? Solid RB2 going forward? Worth the waiver?

    Just received this offer:

    His: TRich/Fitzgerald for my Spiller/Green

    I’m thinking I have to hold off. But I would like Richardson. Would you throw him any of my other WRs with Spiller for the Rich/Fitz package?

    Here’s my roster:

    WR – Green
    WR – Garcon
    RB – Forte
    RB – Gio B
    TE – Graham
    W/R – Decker

    BN – R.Wilson
    BN – Spiller
    BN – FJax
    BN – CJnoK

    Sky in my RCL PPR league where my RB2 and my Flex is pretty weak, do you like this trade:

    I give:
    Demaryius Thomas

    I get:
    Woodhead
    Blackmon

    Right now my WR’s are D.Thomas, Colston, Jeffery, Hartline. I’ve been putting Hartline in my flex, but I think Woodhead would give me more points there and Blackmon would be a consistent WR3. Hopefully.

    • Sky

      Sky says:
      (link)

      You’re hurting your WR set but improving your Flex. It’s fair but I wouldn’t do it.

      • Shake N Bacon says:
        (link)

        @Sky: A’ight. You make a good point. I guess I just got excited about the potential team names I could have with Woodhead on my team.

        *Sad Trombone*

        What about Marques Colston for Woodhead? Alshon Jeffery for Woodhead? The guy with Woodhead has more RB’s than you can shake a stick at. He’s not really hurting at WR but I think it’s his weakest position.

        • Sky

          Sky says:
          (link)

          Ha! I’d be more inclined to move Jeffery there for Woodhead if I’m making a move. Colston’s history makes him too valuable to move him in a trade like that.

        @Sky: No deal. He refuses to trade Jeffery for Romo.

        He tried to give me junk like E. Manning (I can lose Romo and do not need to bring back a QB), Winslow, Little and McGahee to sweeten the deal. But it only made it worse when he asked for Sproles too.

        I actually asked you about the larger deal yesterday. You said to not do it and I didn’t do it.

        There is now no deal to make here.

    I see in your rankings I should start Gronk over Gates this week. But thinking ahead I should probably trade one right since in my league I can only start one and I have 2 high end options. If so which should I trade I’m thinking Gronk for the extra name value and better players he can get me.

      • Mdaddy says:
        (link)

        @Sky: I have Gore, McFadden (Jennings right now), Woodhead, Powell & Ellington so I feel with Romo riding my bench it would be a good time to flip one of them for another solid RB.

        He also has Forte & Lynch, would that make it fair if I tried a 1 for 1 trade? It is a 12-team non-ppr league, I was thinking after this trade goes through picking up Pryor as my backup to Romo.

        • Sky

          Sky says:

    Hey Sky,

    Trying to make a deal with this guy that has both Tom Brady and Philip Rivers. Can’t seem to get him to bite and I have tons of RB depth to trade for a decent QB. 0.5 PPR with a flex.

    Me:
    QB: Eli
    RB: TRich, Knowshon Moreno, Lamar Miller, Joique Bell, Stacy/DRich
    WR: Dez Bryant, Victor Cruz, Kenbrell Thompkins, Tavon Austin
    TE: Gronk, Fleener

    Him:
    QB: Rivers, Brady
    RB: Gore, Rashad Jennings, Marcel Reece, Bernard Pierce
    WR: Brandon Marshall, Golden Tate, Julian Edelman, Percy Harvin, Jacoby Jones
    TE: Graham, Bennett, and Gonzalez.

    I was looking at Lamar Miller’s schedule and thinking about trying to trade him away for Rivers. I want the offer to be good enough that he just bites right away.

    • Sky

      Sky says:

      If you’re trying to trade with him and he’s not showing interest, maybe it’s better to try and communicate with him to see if he’s actually interested and what hed be lookig for rather than repeatedly throwing trades at him.

    I’ve been offered J. Graham/Garcon for Sproles/Nelson/Witten. I’m tempted because I have Brees as my QB. Here’s my squad. PPR.

    A little worried about ATL with the loss of Julio and White not producing. Defenses will defend the run much better. I’m in a 12-team .5PPR dynasty league.

    1) Would you trade S. Jax for Spiller?
    2) Would you trade S. Jax for Lacy?
    3) If yes to both, which would you do first?

    My other RB’s are Forte, Gio, Mathews, MJD and Stacy.

                The movement is rarely drastic unless your value is really in those catches. Think Edelman and Sproles. 3 or 4 catches is 1.5 to 2 points. Hard to predict how much of an effect that’s gonna have on a player for any given week.

    Also need help in my 1/2 PPR: Pick two out of James Jones, V-Jax, Hilton, and Edelman.

      Jordan has a higher floor in a PPR.

      Please use rankings above for your second question.

      I’d look to sell Edelman if I’m worried; I wouldn’t be dropping him for Keenan at this point. Think his value stays solid but not as good as it started for PPR leagues.

      • frankgrimes says:
        (link)

        Edelman value is based on Amendola. Think VJax has big week then prolly Hilton if Amendola is playing. I see Hilton and jones as same type of hit or miss risk. Celek is better ROS IMO.

    I offered vick for calvin to a dude who just traded brady and didnt get a qb in return he is rocking foles and henne now because he dropped palmer also — should i be trying harder to get calvin by adding a WR on my side like shorts or add colston if i can get something else back ??

    My other qbs are RGIII and roethlisberger
    Other wrs marshall amendola colston shorts

    Also while i have ya would you drop cook for rueben randle my other TE is finley or hold

      @Barker:also can i even afford giving vick i guess i could if its calvin or someone else in the top seven or so QBs available on the wire palmer weeden freeman cassel ?? So its a real skeleton crew — vick was pretty great but i guess if its for calvin i gotta at least see if the kid accepts or counters

      Go ahead and try. It doesn’t sound like they’re too worried about their qb situation, though.

      I’d hold.

    Two part question: 1. Made a trade and now have G.Olsen as my 2nd TE in 10 team league. Only other team that might trade has M.Austin, M.Williams, or T.Austin as potential targets in 1 for 1 trade. I don’t love any of them, but would you offer Olsen for any of those three or hold Olsen to see if a better TE gets injured?

    2. Other option: Trade TRich/Fitz/G.Olsen for AP/M.Williams(or one of the other 2 above). Other team has Cook at TE (sucking) and lost Julio. This would upgrade my RB but downgrade my WR3 to the likes of M.Williams/K.Allen/VBrown/Harvin(IR) range. Would you try to make this offer?

    • Sky

      Sky says:

      1. I’d hold, nothing much going on there.

      2. It’s reasonable for a 10 team league. Go for it.

        @Sky: Thanks Sky – which do you like more ROS out of M.Williams, T. Austin, or M. Austin. He also has J.Nelsen but I don’t see him including him in the trade. non-ppr.

    Whats up sky? Vick is hurt, and Ryan is on bye so i gotta free up a space on my roster to pick up another QB. I was trying to package a 2 for 1 deal to make room. I was gonna trade away DeAngello and Tavon for MJD. Do you think this is a good trade, or should I just drop Tavon and get a QB.

    rbs: t rich, mccoy, wilson, lacey, and d will.

    Hey Sky –

    I think you’re overrating the Houston D – they haven’t shown much at all so far. Thru the first five games, they’ve given up 31, 30, 30, 23, and 34. I known some of that is Schaub’s woes – but that still affects the D, and the score. For fantasy, they’ve averaged 5.6 pts/game.

    Outside of Watt, imo, they don’t look good at all – Old Man River (Reed) can’t cover anyone and they can’t stop the run (not that STL can run the ball). Anyway, they may get a couple sacks and a pick or two, but I’d still trust KC, SF, DET, NYJ, and ARI all more at this point…

    Not trying to hate, just sayin’.

    • Sky

      Sky says:
      (link)

      Think you’re not looking at the underlying stats enough. Points don’t reflect how good or bad a team defense is all the time and STL has looked even worse on the other side of the ball. THink they’re in line for a good game. Seriously, go look at some of the underlying stats; I’m not being flippant when I say it.

  97. 12-team PPR
    My team:
    QB: Romo/RGIII
    RB: Bush/D-Mart/Joique/L. Miller/Le’Veon Bell

    This trade was proposed to me:
    Peyton Manning/Ryan Mathews

    Tony Romo/D-Mart.

    I figure that I’m deep enough at RB to afford to give up D-Mart to upgrade my QB to Peyton, and would then own the 2 highest scorers in the league with Graham/Peyton.

    • Sky

      Sky says:
      (link)

      Interesting…I’d actually do that but it’s a risk. Hopefully Mathews comes back healthy. He’s looked pretty good this year, despite the mediocre stats

      • Other things I’m factoring in to help me justify it are:

        Le’Veon Bell seems to be the “bell”cow.
        Joique is doing great in the PPR format.
        They really loaded up the box against the Muscle-Ham with that rook at the helm

        • Sky

          Sky says:
          (link)

          Pun point!

          Yeah, it’s a justifiable trade but only because you’re getting a QB that looks pretty unstoppable with the weapons he has. Bordering on Madden set to rookie. Wouldn’t do it for anyone else, honestly. Think the TB issues will clear themselves up over time.

      You’re giving up a bit too much throwing in Allen, IMHO. It’s one of those ‘on the surface it looks fair trades’. Just depends if you believe in Allen and I do enough to not make that trade right now.

    2. which of these in PPR league at util this week?
    p.thomas/d.moore/m.williams
    hard to believe p.thomas is ahead (a lot ahead too) of f-jax. CIN is good DEF. But I thought NE had good DEF too, i’m guessing Spiller’s health is back to good for this to be true.

      1 Bolden

      • goodfold2 says:
        (link)

        @Sky: if NE doesn’t have good run defense i’m guessing spiller getting healthy is why f-jax is so much lower than P.Thomas?
        3. even though m.williams is yuk i’m still better off holding him then. In that particular league WR free agents are terribly weak.

        • Sky

          Sky says:
          (link)

          FJax had 2 TDs last week because of PI calls putting the ball at the goal line. He wasn’t really running that well if you take those scores away. Plus think CJ is getting healthier and that he’s the lead back still.

          3. yeah, understandable. Low ceiling but a decent history.

  112. Ian says:
    (link)

    In my 12-team standard league I’ve been approached by another owner looking to trade Gates for one of my RBs. I have a little bit of depth at RB with Charles, Murray, Moreno, and Miller. From a straight value perspective, I value all four guys higher than Gates (Miller is close), but with the uncertain tandem of Garrett Graham and Rudolph at TE, there’s no question that Gates would improve my starting lineup.

    With a record of 2-3 thus far, how much should I prioritize value and preserve my RB depth in case of injury, and how much do I need to start maximizing the points in my lineup so I can start winning more games?

    Complicating matters, I just lost Julio, so my greatest need might actually be at WR.

    Should I trade Miller for Gates?
    Should I shop a RB for a WR?

    RB: Charles, Murray, Moreno, Miller
    WR: Gordon, James Jones, Jeffery, Miles Austin, Denarius Moore
    TE: G. Graham, Rudolph

    • goodfold2 says:
      (link)

      @Ian: looks like you’re in worse shape at WR.

    • Sky

      Sky says:
      (link)

      Since you have Garrett, I’d be more concerned about your WR2 situation. James Jones is too hit and miss to be counted on, much like Alshon. You’ll wanna shop an RB. Probably Murray will give you the biggest bang for your buck without leaving you feeling like you need to get another RB. Try a 2-2 upgrade at WR/downgrade at RB trade.

      • Ian says:
        (link)

        @Sky: Thanks for the great advice, Sky (as always)!

        I think I’ve identified a good trade candidate for the 2-2 you described, but there are a few permutations and I’m not sure which would be a good opening offer.

        I’m thinking a 2-2 built around Murray for Sproles at RB, but I’m not sure which receivers to include from each side. What would you recommend?

        Me:
        RB: Charles, MURRAY, Moreno, L. Miller
        WR: Gordon, Ja. Jones, Jeffery, M. Austin, D. Moore

        Him:
        RB: Lynch, SPROLES, L. Bell
        WR: D. Thomas, D. Jackson, Cobb, Holmes, Woods

        • Sky

          Sky says:
          (link)

          Sproles is gonna be a tough get there. Don’t know if you’re getting what you need from this trade might be asking too much

          I’d try: Murray/James Jones for Sproles/DT but it’s probably gonna end up as DJax if he’s interested at all. Not a bad trade in the end but start high and hope.

          • Ian says:
            (link)

            @Sky: Well, he accepted! Thanks for the advice.

    Hi Sky,

    This is a weird fantasy question. Probably one that you may have never come across.

    But anyhow, in my 14-man non ppr keeper league. My best friend is also in the league and is currently in China so I’ve been managing his team and pulling the most legendary of trades for his crappy 5-0 team. And truly, it was a crappy team since much of his wins came across the right head to head matchups where he wasn’t scored on. Anyhow, do you feel that this is sort of weird?

    At the very least it’s interesting to say the least as there isn’t collusion of any sort and I can view his team in an unbiased approach; sort of like a third party and perform the most logical of decisions if this were my team. More importantly, in the span of 1 week I filled all his holes on his team (QB, RB) like a good-will repairman. Care for some Stuck-O to fill that gaping hole on your roster? I gotcha!

    But yeah, feel sort of bad for these other teams that I’m fleecing with these trades I’m making for my buddy. It is weird managing two teams in the same team; even if it’s only temporary for the next 2-3 more weeks.

    What I’ve also learned through the experience is people’s trading mentality. Or at least the mentality of people in our league.

    1). If you are a stacked team (much like my team), then people offer you ridiculous lopsided trades since they see all your delicious merchandise and can’t leave the store unless you offload twice the amount of payload for the player you want from their team. Consequently, the deal ends right there, with their butt kicked out to the curb. Also when you do offer people fair deals, they are afraid to power your team up even more for good reason. That being they won’t beat your team, even if you help them make the playoffs. (WTF? DOES THAT EVEN MAKE SENSE?) But yeah that’s what they tell me. I guess they don’t like the idea of having a chance to get $200-$300 as a second or third place prize, Only six teams make the playoffs in our 14-man league. Currently there is six teams with a record of 5-0, 4-1, or 3-2. While the remaining 8 teams have a pitifull 1-4, or 5-0 record.

    Anyhow these trades start a flowing made crazy when you have a team like my buddy without all the pizazz . The best way to explain his team is it’s like a Walmart. Nothing too special, just common goods. Of course these people don’t feel bad doing a trade and asking for a Gucci handbag when they don’t sell that kind of thing in the first place. Call it a lack of buyer remorse or something.

    For anyone else reading my long rant and strange epiphany moment; please remember that insider trading always helps; collusion is a bad bad thing so don’t do it ever. And never give up on your trade. It takes 200 trade offers to finally get someone to bite.

    And never be on the receiving end of receiving 3 for 1 trades, where you are the person receiving the 3 players. You never come out on the end; hence why you trade the 3 players. But does this make me an extra bad person if I somehow manage to pull two 3 for 1 trades to the same team? LAWL!

    I have J Cook and he has done nothing!

    J Cumberland

    J Reed
    B Pettigrew
    J Grehsam
